Children to benefit from continuing school refurbishment

Related topics: Uncategorized

Pupils and staff from the newly-created Holy Trinity C of E Primary School in Oswestry will benefit from a new main entrance, link block and administrative suite, as part a £2.1m investment in their school buildings.

The school opened in September 2009 after the amalgamation of Oswestry Infant School with Beech Grove C of E Junior School. Building work started soon after to link the two buildings and create an up-to-date and inspirational
learning environment.

This building work is taking place in phases and, with the next phase now complete, pupils and staff will be able to enjoy the new facilities when they come back from their half-term holiday on Monday 28 February.

Building works are due to be completed during the Summer term. Councillor Aggie Caesar-Homden, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for children and young people’s services, said:

“It’s great to see these improvements to the school progressing; this important investment is key to inspiring pupils to learn, thrive and succeed in the future.”

Martin Bennett, a Shropshire Councillor for Oswestry East and a governor of the school, added:

“It has been my personal vision for a number of years to create one school on the site. I am delighted that under the headteacher Nick Turner, with the support of all the staff, the amalgamation has been so successful. I am also very pleased that this has been supported by funding to make major improvements to the school buildings.”
